Every now and then I stumble upon reports of the sightings of a yeti-like beast in the woods around bolam lake. allegedly 7 ft plus in height, muscular , some reports state red glowing eyes, some dont.

i don't know about critters in the wilderness - certainly not in the UK .. with us being relatively small - I'm more than sure that someone would have managed to capture one alive or even found the remains of a dead one.

Ok, places like the US with Bigfoot - yeah, much wider area of wilderness with plenty of areas that maybe only get a handful of visitors per year - but I can't see it with the UK, our long history and 'cramped' living conditions.

Unless your talking about something with a little intelligence, that is ... :shock:

That is all very well if we are dealing with flesh and blood critters, but there are theories to suggest that these sightings may have a more paranormal explanation. The same goes for lake monster and bird men sightings.

Well, I agree somewhat with that Dok - but doesn't that then take it out of the realm of Crypto-Zoology?

It could be that some of these things are not only paranormal, but Alien in nature - which is a differernet field altogether.

To me - crypto-zoology deals with strange critters of this physical world which are yet to be discovered by the main stream and exist only as legend? I may be wrong - it not something I know much about - but thats how I've always percieved it.

I suppose it does take them out of the realm of Crypo-Zoology if they turned out to be paranormal in nature.

Although the paranomal explanation would help explain why we don't find dead ones, or how they can exist without being spotted on a daily basis in small areas like Bolam Lake, it does cause problems when you start to take into account physical evidence such as footprints, hair samples, droppings etc.

I went to Bolam Lake the same day I made the trip up to the Eldson Gibbet as they are not too far from each other. It was a hot summers day and the lake was full of people so it was not the best time to experience anything. I intend to go back to both locations soon.

I've read the reports on Rob's site in the past and found them very interesting. Unfortunately the link doesn't seem to be working at the moment though :(

A lot of places are like that, during the day they seem fine, even walk about all alone.. where at night or when the Lights go out then it becomes very different and also when Psychology can come into play or if spooks are real then the spooks come out and play...
